What is an Engagement Coordinator?

An Engagement Coordinator is a volunteer leader that acts as a grassroots-level representative

of the association, charged with educating members of their campus community about NIRSA

and the many resources and opportunities it has to offer. They are apart of a network of

volunteers that are tuned ­in to the field of collegiate recreation, as well as tapped into—through

collaboration with state, provincial, and regional leaders—the association's upcoming events

and latest news. NIRSA Engagement Coordinators serve as a great point of reference on all

things NIRSA and campus recreation.
